Digital Humanities

49:22
The Digital Humanities community is one of the most active in the information standards world — from supporting good metadata and standardized taxonomies to data preservation, and so much more! This panel brings together digital humanities experts from South Africa, the UK, and the US to discuss when, how, and why they use standards in their work, and what improvements and additions are needed.
Libraries have long collected audio and video content in varying formats housing those materials in special archives and collections. However, unlike the static documents that have been digitized for purposes of enabling Web access by users, some collections of audio and video content may not have received the appropriate attention and resources that ensure long-term preservation. This session will look at a variety of such collections and associated archiving initiatives focused on what is an increasingly at-risk set of materials.
